ISTA Festival – Arizona

April 15 - April 19

You are invited to join us April 15-19 in Phoenix, Arizona for four days of inspiring and life changing workshops with an incredible team of top facilitators from ISTA, the International School of Temple Arts gathered from around the world to share their teachings ranging from Shamanism to Tantra as part of a rich program including Sacred Rituals, Conscious Dance, Live Music and Art Performances as we raise our spirits, empower our sexuality and expand our consciousness as a community into a living breathing expression of Love.

**What is an ISTA Festival?**

This Festival is all about you being you. It is a journey within. A journey home. What is in the way of loving yourself fully? Of allowing more love into your life? Abundance? Of allowing your voice to be heard and your emotions felt? This festival is not about learning something new, but remembering who you are and doing it together with others seeking to do the same! Your community. Your tribe.

Imagine a gathering of souls who have the intention and purpose to simply release guilt, shame & fear and step into a world of more love, power and ease. Imagine how much you could learn about and fall in love with yourself in such a place. Imagine being at the center of such a gathering surrounded by nature as beautiful as the souls called to share these special days and nights together. This gathering may be much more than just a festival, it may be a new beginning as you awaken to the possibility that we can live in our ease in our power and as beings of love.

Bring your curiosity, your desire, your fear, your vulnerability, your courage, your questions, your doubts, your hopes & your dreams. All of you is welcome here! You get to go at your own pace participating in as much as you wish and taking space when you need. There are supportive facilitators, healers and allies to support you on this journey. You choose your own adventure at the ISTA Festival. May it take you somewhere more beautiful than you imagined possible!
